Woman robs 18-month-old baby by stealing the girl’s $100 earrings


A 21-year-old woman robbed an 18-month-old baby. According to a report by CBS New York, Desire Santiago stole the baby’s earrings while working at a daycare in Bronx, N.Y.

A surveillance camera caught Santiago as she picked up the sleeping baby and put the girl on her lap. When a co-worker left the room, Santiago snatched the gold and diamond earrings from the baby’s ears. Santiago cradled the baby once her co-worker returned.

When the child’s mother picked her up from daycare, she noticed that her earrings were missing. The gold and diamond earrings cost $100 and were a gift from the baby’s grandfather.

The child’s mother alerted authorities and Santiago was fired from her job and arrested. She has been charged with grand larceny and possession of stolen property.

    That is sick! How could you steal from a child, especially one that you are being paid to care for! This woman is dumber than a box of rocks. Did she think she would actually get away with stealing earrings from a baby at a daycare center. It never occured to her that the parent (s) picking the child up would notice that her earrings were missing!

    This is insane, such a sick mind she is, it is my advice that all the baby day care centers must increase the the cctv cameras, so that such kind of thefts / incidents may not happen.
